is in fact what happens. this was a chronology and when the united states government announced a large-scale resettlement of iraqis in 2007, we immediately looked at what we should be doing in light of this particular population which was different, in nationality we had not been resettling a great deal. we looked at enhancements which could bring on board that would address this new population and that's when we created the partnership with d.o. de. later >> was this in 2007? >> will yes, later when we identified a new partnership with the counter-terrorism center, that was initially focused on iraqi applicants but we learned by doing and we learned about the heightened level of checks and then we expanded to applicants of all nationalities. we use the iraqi program to raise the bar across the board for other nationalities. >> there were some 25,000 per year for a few years, isn't that right? >> i believe the high point was 18,000 ballots did you have the resources to do some kind of fairly thorough assessment of each of those 18,000 before they were able to be granted -- >> yes, sir,

in united states called burning springs because the of naturally occurring methane in the water. in pennsylvania, the first case they had of water catching on fire was in 1670. it is been happening for a while. they have had documented cases in colorado of wells catching .ire since the 20's this has caused a panic nonetheless. it does become a celebrity cause to talk about how fracking is going to mess up all the drinking water, all of our sins are going to catch on fire. it is amazing to me -- sinks are going to catch on fire. it is amazing to me how much money they have to put towards this propaganda. they have enough money to advertise. i do not think we ever had an exxon ad in the national review. >> >> promised land, the primary backers was uae. >> why would they want to do that? [laughter] >> protecting what they have. did not want to see the technology that we have here come see them over there. >> a lot of people do not realize this huge trade deficit we have. half of it historical has been energy products, mostly oil. if you get to the point where you are a self-suffici
racked up. if congress refuses to give united states the ability to pay its bills on time, consequences for the entire global economy could be catastrophic. the last of congress threatened this course of action, our entire economy suffered. i congratulate the newly sworn in members of congress. i look forward to working with the new congress and a bipartisan way. if we focus on the interests of our country above the interests of the party, am convinced we can cut spending and raise revenue in a manner that reduces our deficit and protect the middle class. and we can step up to me the important business that awaits us this year, creating jobs -- to the important business that awaits us this year, creating jobs. protecting our planet from harmful effects of climate change. educating our children, shielding them from the horrors of gun violence. these are things we must do. in this new year, i will fight as hard as i know how to get them done. happy new year, everybody. >> i am congressman dave camp. let me be candid. and anderson and the frustration so many americans have with washington
have the president of the united states go over and have a cheerleading, ridiculing of republicans' exercise in speaking to the people of the united states of america. as i watched other presidents address crises, the way that they were able to address them and resolve them with presidential leadership -- and that's why we elect presidents, to lead -- they did it by calling the leaders of both parties to the white house and sit around the table and do the negotiations and the discussions and they are sometimes concessions have to be made, compromises have to be made. so what did the president of the united states just do? well, he kind of made fun, he made a couple of jokes, laughed about how people are going to be here for new year's, sent a message of confrontation to the republicans, i believe he said if they think they're going to do that, then they've got another thought coming. i guess i have to wonder, and i think the american people have to wonder whether the president really wants this issue resolved or is it to his short-term political benefit for us to go over the cliff?
summer, maybe. the developments across north africa have huge implications for the united states. to give you one example -- any time you had areas where there is no rule of law and where there is no government, you have a place where al qaeda or al qaeda type affiliate's can take root. as we have those places, they feed things -- they see things. they see plots, they contemplate plot against the united states. just because they have not had a major terrorist attack in the homeland in the last few years does not mean that we can seal ourselves off from the rest of such an attack. we live in a world where what happened in north africa and country that people may not have even heard of before really can have a direct impact, whether you live in washington, d.c., los angeles or any place in between. >> we also have homegrown terrorists and so called lone wolves. when we are dealing with american citizens inside our country, there is a different rate that applies. our constitution and our fourth amendment. aseptic that where that line is between freedom of expression, protected by our first a

/20. i am for fighting fights -- i wrote this in the context of women in ground combat units where i have been very distressed by a bunch of republican senators in the last 48 hours to have decided we had a war on women in charge of the campaign in 2012, and we are not going to oppose something that is literally not, i think, an extremely damaging -- [applause] extremely damaging in all kinds of ways. there are many good arguments against it. but politicians sometimes over think these things, and they tell themselves they cannot fight this fight because we did badly in 2012 on this, and cannot fight this fight because we have a constituency that does not want it, and you end up tying yourself into knots. i think we should encourage the possibility for political entrepreneurship over the next year or two or three. jack kemp was not popular. he did it from the house. he was not on the house ways and means committee, which is the committee that writes tax policy. the deeply resented him telling them what republican tax policy should be -- they deeply resented him. i am all for having these d
i am trying to respectfully say today, as much as anything, to the president of the united states, is congratulations on your inauguration. i was there. i was proud to participate in it for a chance to say for a minute and a half why we celebrate for the 57th time the inauguration of an american president, we celebrate it because our country is distinguished from most of the other countries in the world by the peaceful transition or reaffirmation of the largest amount of power in the world. we have our political contests and then we have the restraint to respect theesults. but having won, having won the election, it's important first to get the fiscal house in order. the time to do it is while we have divided government. the time to do it is while the president is at the peak of his popularity. the time to do it is while the house of representatives, the republican house has created a window of two or three months to deal with all the fiscal issues. and the time to do it is after two years of discussion of republicans and democrats in a bipartisan way about the need to fix the deb
. [laughter] but we cannot get rattled. we will not. we have to stay united. we have to show that if given the chance, we can govern. we have better ideas. the fact is, we are not in the wilderness. republicans controlled the house and most of the statehouses. we have to oppose the president on some fronts and we have to engage them on others. we cannot let our country have a debt crisis. if they will not help ask our entitlements, and we have to buy time. we have to keep the bond market at the bait for the safety of our people. that means we will face tough moments. like the fiscal cliff. i know we did not see eye to eye. on january 1, a trillion dollar tax hike took effect. the senate voted to prevent tax hikes and 98% of americans. and made the lower tax hikes permanent. president obama got less revenue than the speaker offered in the first place. in short, there is no way we were going to get a better deal for the american tax payer. we wanted to keep tax hikes low for everybody. we wanted to cut spending. otherwise every single taxpayer would have paid higher taxes and our economy wou
be recognized and it is similar to what is going on in the u.k. the united kingdom had a scandal like this in 2006. they created a separate unit. a separate unit that was staffed with experts in investigations and prosecutions within the military to handle these cases. so that the decision was not being made by the unit commander. that was in 2006. in 2007, they found that good order and discipline stayed in tact, in fact, the unit commanders were relieved not having to handle these cases anymore. i would like to encourage you to speak with your counterparts in the u.k. to see how their system works and if we would be better served to move into a system like that. i yield back. >> i'm encouraged to hear you say there's a training session for the new recruits before they actually go to the m.t. think is very helpful. how do we get the recruits to fully understand or believe that reporting bad behavior will be supported by leadership and will not harm them? they can develop that trust and know that is the right thing to do and have more conversation in their reporting and what might you
